Tyreek Hill Fantasy Football News 2019

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is under investigation for battery, the Kansas City Star reports. The incident reportedly involves Hill's 3-year-old son, who ended up with a broken arm. Hill dropped to the 5th round of the 2016 draft largely because of domestic assault and battery charges back in 2014 that got him dismissed from Oklahoma State. We'll see where this investigation goes and how the NFL reacts.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) is active for tonight’s game against the Chargers. He played through the injuries last week — effectively — and got in a couple of limited practices this week. He comes with more risk than usual tonight but still boasts big upside.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel, wrist) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. He played through this injury last week and got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. Hill is fully expected to play tomorrow night, but we'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said that WR Tyreek Hill (foot) will practice on Tuesday. He'll likely be listed as "limited," but Hill remains on track to play against the Chargers on Thursday night. He produced after suffering that foot injury last week and remains a high-upside fantasy play in Week 15.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's foot injury is "nothing serious" and that's he's considered "day-to-day." Hill was obviously hobbled in yesterday's win over the Ravens. But he played through the injury -- and effectively. The short turnaround for Thursday night's game against the Chargers complicates the situation, but we'd bet on Hill being out there. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Monday night's Chiefs-Rams game has been moved to Los Angeles. The game was originally scheduled for Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, but there were concerns about the field conditions there. Consider the move back to U.S. soil good news for both offenses -- especially the Rams playing at home.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (groin) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Wednesday and Friday. Hill remains a must-start.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (groin) was limited on Thursday after putting in a full practice on Wednesday. He either suffered a setback over the past 2 days or the Chiefs are just taking it easy on their big-play threat. We should have a better idea of Hill's status by tomorrow afternoon.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill put in a full practice on Wednesday. The groin injury he suffered in last week's win over the Broncos shouldn't be an issue in Cleveland on Sunday. Hill remains a must-start in fantasy lineups.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill suffered a strained groin near the end of Sunday's win over the Broncos, HC Andy Reid said. Hill was rocking this sumo wrestler Halloween costume afterward, so we're guessing the injury isn't serious. We'll look for updates, though, and track Hill's practice participation this week.

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Chiefs game calls for periods of heavy rain. The good news is that winds are expected to be only 6-7 mph. They aren't ideal conditions, but it's not enough for us to adjust our projections for these passing games. You might use the weather as a tiebreaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players, though.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Broncos for non-injury reasons. He's being rested in the meaningless finale. HC Andy Reid has already said QB Alex Smith won't play this weekend, and we're not expecting to see RB Kareem Hunt or Travis Kelce either.

The forecast for today's Chiefs-Giants game calls for 16-20 mph winds with possible gusts over 40 mph. That's more than enough to make an impact, particularly on the deep-passing and kicking games. We just moved Alex Smith, Eli Manning, Tyreek Hill, Harrison Butker and Aldrick Rosas down the Week 11 Rankings. This could be a run-heavy game on both sides.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has been cleared of a concussion, according to Pro Football Talk. So he'll be available for Thursday night's game against the Raiders. Hill will remain a WR2 with upside for that one.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said after Sunday's loss to the Steelers that WR Tyreek Hill is being evaluated for a concussion. The potential head injury presumably occurred at the end of a punt return late in the 4th quarter. Hill wasn't on the field for Kansas City's final drive. We should get an update on his status tomorrow.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has been a standout early in training camp. He's "taking his game to another level," B.J. Kissel of the team's official website wrote after Sunday's practice. "Hill made contested catches in tight space, fought off defenders for leverage, and obviously showed the world-class speed ... all indications through offseason workouts and the first part of camp is that he’s prepared to handle an increased workload in 2017." Kansas City showed big faith in Hill when they released WR Jeremy Maclin in June. He should see a nice bump from last year's 83 targets -- and continue to contribute on the ground after a 24-267-3 rushing line as a rookie. Hill is pricey, though, with an MFL10 ADP sitting in the 4th round.

The Chiefs have released WR Jeremy Maclin. This one comes out of nowhere. Maclin missed 4 games last year and finished with a disappointing 44-546-2 line. But he's just 29 and went for 1,088 yards and 8 scores back in 2015. It sounds like this was a salary cap move, with Maclin's release saving the Chiefs $10 million. It shouldn't take him long to find a new employer. The Ravens would be a nice landing spot. In Kansas City, meanwhile, WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce are left as the clear top 2 options in the passing game. WR Chris Conley figures to join those guys in the starting lineup and could be an intriguing late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid is looking to expand WR Tyreek Hill's role in 2017, he said from the owners' meetings. “He’ll do nothing but get better as long as he keeps the right attitude and the same work ethic he had this past year," Reid said. "I’m expecting good things from him." Hill played in less than 40% of Kansas City's offensive snaps last year but still finished 23rd among WRs in PPR points. Of course, he also racked up 85 offensive touches -- a number the 5'10, 185-pounder is unlikely to top going forward. Still, more playing time could at least make Hill a more reliable weekly fantasy option.

The NFL has moved kickoff of the Steelers-Chiefs game to 8:20 pm ET on Sunday. The game was originally scheduled to start at 1:05 ET, but Kansas City is expected to get slammed by an ice storm this weekend. The current forecast calls for a 100% chance of rain and 32-degree temperatures for Sunday night, so we're not sure what the new kickoff time is accomplishing. Wind isn't expected to be an issue, but the conditions will obviously be less than ideal for the passing games.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was the most electric player on the field in Thursday night's game against the Raiders. He got the Chiefs on the board in the 2nd quarter with a 36-yard TD grab, running right by CB David Amerson on a post route. Later in that quarter, Hill took a punt return right through the teeth of Oakland's coverage for a 78-yard score. Kansas City got Hill the ball on a few quick-hitting passes, but he wasn't able to break any of those for big gains. He finished with 6 catches on 6 targets for 66 yards. It's worth noting that he played just 45.5% of the offensive snaps, his lowest share since Week 8. But Hill is getting the ball when he's on the field and will remain a key piece of this Chiefs offense the rest of the way. He gets a plus Week 15 matchup against the Titans' 29th-ranked WR defense.
